Roku not showing up on Apple devices

So I have a Roku Premier+ 4630x which is updated to version 9.4 and an Apple iPhone that is running IOS 14.  Both devices are on the same WiFi network yet when I turn on Airplay on my Roku it never shows up on my iPhone as a screen mirror option. I have tried checking every option I can think of yet I cannot get airplay to work on my Roku.  Any thoughts?

What worked for me on my wife's iPad was shutting off and restarting the iPad's wifi.

I appreciate the info.  I just tried everything in your post and still can’t get my IPad or IPhone to stream to Roku.  Also I’m guessing the Roku help team doesn’t care given their silence on this problem.

Factory reset your Roku, and set it up as new. I was having AirPlay issues with my 4630 when using Apple Music on my iPhone XS Max, and a factory reset of the Roku fixed it.
